Welcome to Harrogate Bridge Club
Wednesday Bridge Schedule


Reopening of Wednesday Evening Sessions - 13th October

On Wednesday 13th October we will re-start the duplicate sessions at the Club, face to face.  Please arrive not before 7:00pm for a 7:15pm start.

The new ventilation system (see below) and spacing of tables provides a comfortable and safe environment.  We realise that some players feel dubious or rusty having not played for some time but don't worry we ask everyone to be patient and understanding.  Some members have already said that they would like to play but have no partner, so either use the partner finder on Pianola or phone Julie Godbold on 01423 879658.

We look forward to seeing you again.
 

Wednesday Evening and Friday Morning Online BBO

With more and more people ready to come back to play face to face at the Club, the decision has been made to cancel both of the BBO sessions with immediate effect.

Bridge Lessons


New bridge lessons starting at the club in October!

Beginners
Mondays 10:15am starting 4th October for 11 weeks

These lessons are for students who haven't played bridge or other card games before.  You'll be playing the game within 15 minutes, the start of a lifetime of trying to master this game.

Improvers
Thursdays 10:15am starting 7th October for 11 weeks

These lessons are suitable for students who have completed the 20 week online course or students who have played previously but feel they need a refresher on bidding and playing.  

If you are interested or have any questions, please contact Rob Cave robcave@live.co.uk.  Cost : £7 per 2 hour lesson.  There is no obligation to attend all of the lessons.  Latecomers welcome.

An EBU textbook is available for purchase from Rob.  Rob is an EBU qualified bridge teacher.

Ventilation


Ventilation Improvements and Air Purifiers

 Following more research and having taken advice from a ventilation contractor, we have:

  • started using both wall fans as extractors with very good results without opening windows
  •  set up three Electriq EAP500HC ionising air purifiers.  These were the highest-rated ones tested by Which? and have advanced features including HEPA filters which take out 99.9% airborne particles down to 0.25 microns including bacterial pollutants.

These measures will improve playing comfort and, we hope, help to reassure players that from now on we will have excellent air quality and make the Club a safe place to come to.  More details are being circulated to Members via Pianola.

Welcome


We are a welcoming and friendly bridge club catering for players of all standards.  We run seven pairs sessions per week and a supervised play afternoon for those who want to practice before they step up to duplicate.  We also have classes for beginners and intermediates, and occasional instruction on specific topics.

Visiting pairs are always made welcome.

For the more competitive players we have five teams in the Yorkshire Sunday League.   Many of our players also group together to make teams of four that play in the Harrogate and District Bridge League against more local opposition.

Harrogate Bridge Club is located in the centre of this beautiful spa town.  The club has its own private premises and is well established with over 250 members.  In addition to our playing areas, the club has a kitchen and a licensed bar.  HBC is a member of the English Bridge Union, EBU, and the Yorkshire Contract Bridge Association, YCBA.  We use the Bridgemate wireless scoring system so that results are updated as you play.  Hand copies of each session can be taken away and are also available once the results are posted on the website.
